This is one of my favourite listens. I like all the "star wars" books with Marcus Brigstocke but this is my favourite of the lot. His interviewees are all wonderful, especially Ian Hislop, Giles Coren and Frank Skinner but all six are well worth a second, third or eighty-eighth listen.
hearing about Ian Hislop's first purchase of jeans, Frank Skinner's encounter with a jugged hare and Giles Coren's first foray into veganism (spoiler, two of those enjoyed their encounters, one didn't) was wonderful.
They all undertook their assignments with gusto and Marcus Brigstocke was the ideal host.
I wish I had been in the audience when Ian Hislop baked a cake or Kathy Burke tried eating seafood but alas, I wasn't.
